    Hi guys,

    I'm set to be joining PwC on their management consulting grad scheme later this year.

    I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of exit opps were available for big 4 consulting grads. My programme is a 2 year rotational one, but after I complete it I think I would like to specialise in strategy (though we will see).

    Anyone know the chances of breaking into a big strat house or similar after being at a big 4 firm for 2 years in their consulting department?

    Any info would help, thanks!

    Def something for you to look into, or ask about when the time is right. If you can get them, they will help greatly.

    Do you know anyone who has taken this career path? Could you speak to them? Or track someone down via an existing contact?

    Met some associates at the 1st year TA who said they had to put in 3 preferences at the end of their rotational scheme. Apparently the 'people and change' competency was by far the most popular within their cohort (2013 joiners). Assuming nothing's changed in 2 years you could wind up in S& as a senior associate. Have a stalk of Embark on fb to check out the competition for S& within your cohort (hint: they're probably Oxbridge or LSE grads - that and other assumptions have to be made, I'll let you decide).

    Hi,
    I can't really add much to the conversation but was wondering if PwC expected candidates to have a prior internship in consultancy roles?

    Do you get any bonuses/sign-on/relocation allowance in addition to that?

    Mostly corporate strategy or development gigs at FTSE250/F500 companies or moving over to a client in some operating (i.e. Marketing, Finance etc) capacity.

    A lot of consultants also go for an MBA after 3-4 years to open up more opportunities.
